Bollywood to the rescue: Ajay Devgn to make film on Galwan Valley incident

Bollywood actor and producer, Ajay Devgan is soon going announce a film based on the attack on Indian soldiers by Chinese troops in Galwan Valley along the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh.

“It will narrate the story of the sacrifice of 20 Indian army men who fought the Chinese Army,” a report said

The report further read that it is not clear if Ajay Devgan will himself star in the movie, but the film will be co-produced by Ajay Devgan Films and Select Media Holdings LLP.

Earlier on 15 June, during a violent face-off between India and China in the Galwan valley, 20 Indian Soliders were killed.

Indian and Chinese soldiers continue to be eyeball to eyeball at the Line of Actual Control at Galwan Valley, Hot Springs, Depsang Plains and Pangong Tso in Ladakh and at Naku La in North Sikkim.

And now China has reportedly started creating trouble for Indian patrols in the Daulat Beg Oldi (DBO) area between patrolling points 10 and 13 and the Demchok region in eastern Ladakh.

The armies of India and China are locked in a tense standoff in eastern Ladakh, where China has reportedly occupied 60 sq. kilometres of territory claimed by India.

A Chinese diplomat reacting to the standoff in Ladakh has said that the move is linked to the Indian government’s unilateral decision to scrap Article 370 in August last year.

The move changed the laws that prohibited Indians from buying land in Kashmir, and made the constitution of Jammu and Kashmir defunct, triggering fears of demographic change in the Muslim majority region of Kashmir.

When India scrapped Jammu and Kashmir’s special status on August 5 last year, the Chinese foreign ministry had issued two statements criticising the development, including one that focused on the splitting of the state into union territories.

This statement, while urging India to be “cautious” on the border issue and to avoid “actions that further complicate the border issue”, said: “China has always opposed India’s inclusion of Chinese territory in India’s administrative jurisdiction in the western part of the Sino-Indian border.” This was a reference to the area in Ladakh that New Delhi claims but is controlled by Beijing.
